"It is the unqualified result of all my experience with the sick, that second only to their need of fresh air is their need of light...And that is not only light but direct sun-light they want.... People think that the effect is upon the spirits only. This is by no means the case. The sun is not only a painter but a sculptor." Florence Nightingale, Notes on Nursing, 1860
Peter Lindsay lives in Denver and works as an executive with an international leadership development company. He is a professional speaker and training facilitator. He is an avid cyclist and was hit by a car in October 2017, which caused a traumatic brain injury. Peter continues rehab at Craig Hospital to rebuild his capabilities after significant cranial nerve damage, including damage that affects his vision.
This painting project was the first time since the accident that he picked up a brush. His brain injuries caused a temporary loss of emotions that has persisted since the accident. About the painting, he wanted to create something that would express feelings or Peter's perception of a man who might be emotional in his healing.
- Each painting measures at 14" W x 10" H
